Comment from the Coach


After a rusty start, we emerged with a hard fought 3-3 draw today which whilst we had opportunities to win, was probably a fair result.

I spoke to the Roundshaw Manager at length before the game and he confirmed they had basically re-built their side from a couple of weeks prior to our Cup game. They are now a good side as their recent results testify - which places today's good result in perspective bearing in mind we lost the cup game.

It took us a good 20-30m to start finding our rhythm and once we did, our game started to flow. We had several good opportunities before James slotted a long range shot. Tom pounced on a free ball from a well placed corner to score followed by Gareth with a quality header - again from a corner play. Pleasing to see a bit more opportunity taking coming from the corners guys.

However, we showed the classic signs of not having played for a month - our talking was minimal, we were a bit slow to release the ball at times and defensively, we left some large gaps as our co-ordination slipped. But these aspects will come good as we re-build match fitness.

Francesco kept his remarkable penalty defence record in place after a rather dubious penalty decision went against us - great effort Fran!

Man-of-the-match today was Jack E - another solid and convincing display showing good vision and calmness under pressure.
